The best kinds of creative inspiration are always born out a specific need. "Leftmusing" found herself looking for a very special solution for her apartment: "a table in my oddly shaped kitchen that could act as additional counter space, a place to eat, store kitchen stools and general spot to put stuff on, all while being 16"x52".

Scott took a walk in the woods near his home - a very famous woodland that happens to have been featured in films like The Princess Bride, Harry Potter, and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - and came back with an armload of twigs. Some wire and a biscuit tin later, and he's created this rustic twig bowl, perfect for the fall.
